andrew-laddAs one of the top professional hockey players in North America, Andrew Ladd’s passion for the game is matched only by his passion for improving the lives of others. To give back to communities in the United States and Canada, Andrew and his wife Brandy formed the Ladd Foundation.

The Ladd Foundation supports a broad range of causes, namely focused on youth and the environment. We are especially aware of issues impacting the health and wellbeing of young people, such as disabilities, illness, mental health and poverty. Our goal is to give individuals with limited opportunity access to new, exciting experiences, namely through sporting events.

The Ladd Foundation is a donor advise fund. Through the New York Islanders Children’s Foundation and charitable groups in Canada, we identify and support causes that speak to our mission.

Our hope is that participating individuals have a greater opportunity to experience joy, engage with others, and benefit for a lifetime.

“Every parent wants the best for their kids, whether that’s opportunity or health. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to be able to provide those things to their children. We have great compassion for those parents and if we can alleviate some of the stress that comes with facing these issues, we want to help.”
